Small Successes

I was writing up another post this morning, but I am tired and didn't feel inspired until I read this post on a blog I enjoy called Faith and Family Live.
Lately I've been feeling like my to-do list is overwhelming, so it's good to remind myself of my small successes.

So three small successes from the past few weeks relating to the frugal life are the following:

1) I cut out most of my huge stack of coupon inserts. (I had gotten three papers the week that there were five coupon inserts, so my backlog was huge.) I still have a couple of inserts to go, but I got a lot done.

2) I potty-trained my daughter. This is actually pretty huge! Huge money saving on diapers - 'nuff said!

3) I went sledding with my daughter and our good friends. Sometimes I feel like I'm always working on my to-do list, but in the end, having fun with my daughter is what is really important. That is why I am home with her - to spend time together.

So never mind that I have mountains of laundry to do and overdue thank you notes to write and that I haven't put away all our Christmas decorations or totaled up our receipts for the past two months. I guess I'm not so behind after all. :-)
After writing this post, I felt so good that I was inspired to sit down and finish all those thank you notes. So make that 4 small successes!
